SMITHSFEST

The ICA is hosting a two day festival, Smithsfest, surveying the artistic and cultural impact of The Smiths; comprising of talks, performance, art and film on the 29 March 2013 – 30 March 2013.

Highlights include the London debut of Terry Christian’s solo show Naked Confessions of A Recovering Catholic; a double-bill of A Taste of Honey and The Leather Boys introduced by Rita Tushingham, two films she stars in and which were a huge influence on The Smiths.

Get quiffed up with a Moz Makeover from Open Barbers and Barberette, get your photo taken in front of the legendary Salford Lads Club, and confront MozTerMind: ask him anything about the Smiths or Morrissey and he knows the answer! The Readers Wifes, Strangeways and Morrissey Smiths Disco spin records throughout the weekend, plus an exhibition of exclusive photographs by legendary rock photographer Tom Sheehan.

Book at the ICA Box Office.
See you there!
